IGES Center Collaborating with UNEP on Environmental Technologies (CCET), Climate & Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) and United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will co-organize an online session titled “Webinar Series on Open Waste Burning in Asia (2022/2023)
Webinar No. 1: Practices of Open Waste Burning in Asian Cities – Challenges and Opportunities”.
Considering the importance of addressing the issue of open waste burning and its impacts on climate and health, CCET is planning to hold a series of webinars on the topic during 2022-2023, along with other national and international partners. The first webinar entitled “Practices of Open Waste Burning in Asian Cities: Challenges and Opportunities” will therefore give an overview of open burning practices in Asia and share challenges and opportunities in addressing this in cities, based on the experience of the selected pilot locations. Researchers, practitioners and policymakers working in the field of waste management are invited to present and discuss open waste burning practices in their own cities. This will be followed by an engaging and constructive discussion between the panelists and participants.
